Why Won’t Obama Stand Up To Big Oil?

Pap and Seder: Why Won’t Obama Stand Up To Big Oil?

Gary Bentley    Ring Of Fire
President Obama recently proposed the sale of millions of acres of the Atlantic shelf to the oil industry, giving them unprecedented access to Atlantic oil reserves. This presents obvious dangers of an offshore oil spill in an area highly dependent upon both the fishing and tourism industries.

Ring of Fire’s Mike Papantonio and Sam Seder talk about the dangers of this proposal, and why the President is even bothering bowing down to the oil industry.
